The sides also agreed on cooperation in technology, aviation services, education and palm oil production.

A joint statement released after a meeting between the two PMs indicated their agreement in financial collaboration and India’s appreciation of Malaysia’s visa waiver programme for Indian nationals between now and March 2018.

The leaders also stressed their commitments to combating terrorism together, agreeing that their fight targets not only terrorists and their network but also countries that support terrorism.
